of all, last night in my analysis, i had no beef with president obama not mentioning the word of terrorism. i said, no, he has to wait until he sees the evidence before he defines it in any way. we know it is terrorism now and president said it's terrorism. i also said he used the word tragedy in a wrong way because it's much more than a tragedy. do you agree with that? >> i agree entirely. obama is not the first to use tragedy in describing events like this. a bus accident is a tragedy and attack is an act of war. when fdr addressed the congress after pearl harbor, he didn't say december 7th, a day that will live in tragedy, it is a day that will live in infamy. it has to do with agency and cause. an accident is a tragedy and it has a cause and has to do with fate, accident, luck. when the agency is human evil that is beyond a tragedy. it's a crime. that is what we're dealing with. i agree it's a little early. it was obvious an attack. to call it terrorism you had to be sure that the motive was a political one. remember what happened in the tucson shooting where a member of c
have thought that gun control would be such a central part of the debate in president obama's second term? picking up on that, how much of what actually gets done is just sort of the circumstances that occur, the events and crises that draw our attention and how much is presidential skill or the political set of facts in terms of who controls the senate and congress. what is really driving our policy? >> it has been a combination of all those things. that's what's interesting. if you look at smart presidents like lyndon baines johnson became masterful manipulators of the political process to pass legislation including civil rights law that anyone thought was possible. and i think no one would have thought it was even possible to discuss gun control legislation and immigration at the same time at the beginning of barack obama's first term. and yet circumstances changed. in the immigration law, what is driving all this is clearly the poll numbers. that's all that is behind this whole gang of 8 legislative effort. so i think a new sort of deal of the cards, if you will. a new seventh ci

. there is breaking news tonight in washington where the white house has confirmed a letter sent to president obama has, in fact, tested positive for ricin. now, the poison was also sent to several senators and others. we'll have the details on that in a little bit but, first, the breaking developments in the boston terror investigation. >> good evening, this is what we can tell you. we believe police and investigators are scouring over an image capturing camera about a quarter mile down the street of residents boilston, it was that image captured 2:30 local time monday that police believe there was a young man on this image that they want to talk to. no identity given. we can report that there has been no arrests made. there is a press conference scheduled for the past several hours to take place at this moment by the fbi. that has now been postponed. not clear when that will start. if it will happen tonight or if it will, in fact, happen tomorrow the reason why the press conferences is so significant what happened yesterday. the fbi briefed once in the morning at 5:30 and again 5:00 p.m. local ti
the obama administration responsible. the money she raised recently came from $5 and $10 contributions. the money came from people who were not in her district. and her district is becoming fed up with her. host: that was michael on the republican line. the national rifle association put out a statement following the defeat of the bill. "new york times seeking a lead editorial -- broderick in albany, georgia. your thoughts? all i amirst of getting ready to graduate from political science. out of the 46 senators, two are from georgia and i plan to get on the phone and talk to them. also agun owner and i am christian. i was shocked when i was 16 years old. that if background checks were into effect back than i could have had not been shot. i'm doing what i can rallies in support to find out why the senators voted against the bill. as you know we have two senators from every state. i am just upset because background to prevent lives that were lost in the other areas -- >> as a gun owner you supported what the senate was debating yesterday? >> i felt that a background check -- they could s
a bill passed. president obama was joined afterwards by gabby giffords and families of newtown victims and delivered one passionate reaction to today's vote which roughly 40% of the american people believe in something, the senate failed to respond. >> all in all, this was a pretty shameful day for washington. but this effort is not over. >> 90% of the american people support extended background checks and they couldn't get it passed in the representative u.s. senate. >>> let's again with the latest on the investigation up in boston into those bombings. nbc analyst michael leiter was director of the national counterterrorism center and clint van zandt is a profiler. all of this is a key related, battery pack, circuit board, news about the pressure cooker. a piece of it discovered. so much physical evidence and then the picture taken by the video surveillance camera at lord & ta are lo, we've confirmed, it's a picture of someone putting down a black bag, some sort of shopping bag, and then walking away from the bomb site. >> well, it's been a very good day, chris, and it's interesting a
speeches that barack obama has ever given as president of the united states. newtown families and tucson survivors standing with the president at the white house when he made those remarks. many of them today were looking on in the senate as the background checks bill was filibustered. there's a lot to explain what happened there in that story and what happens next. this is, clearly, the biggest policy story in this president's second term thus far, by far it is. but also in the midst of all of this, still today, the country is riveted to the continuing news out of boston after the bombing of the boston marathon two days ago. the first thing you need to know what happened today in the news about boston is some of what you may have heard today out of boston was flat-out wrong. >> again, i have a boston source, fran townsend has a second source, in fact, an arrest has been made on wednesday. here's what fran's source said, an arrest has been made based on two different videos showing images of the suspect. i was told the video enhancement showed a dark-skinned male placing the package at t
offer the boston marathon participants an tun to cross a finish line at halftime. >> president obama used his weekly address to tell americans to praise the city of boston for standing strong in the face of last week's bombings. >> if anyone wants to know who we are? what america is? how we respond to evil and terror? that is it. severallessly, compassionately and unafraid. >> president and police obama attended a memorial service in boston on thursday for the bombing victims. in this morning's dress the president said "boston's unwaivering spirit remained undaunted in the face of terror." the president told the people of boston the rest of the nation is with them in their time of trouble. >>> here in the bay area love and support is pouring in for a martinez boy who was wounded in the boston bombings. ktvu's john sasaki shows us how friends and neighbors are raising money for aaron hern. >> reporter: it was a great day for a work in briones park, but this day was about photography for a good cause. >> oh, pretty. >> it's a great family and we just want to help them out. >> nico
, president obama promised americans, if you like your health insurance you can keep it. bill: they were smacked in 2010. we'll see whether or not it is an issue in 2014. >> thank you. bill: john fund with us here in new york today. 20 past, martha. martha: bracing for the worst but fighting back at the same time. where folks are filling sandbags around the clock right now to try to save their town from the devastating floodwaters. wait until you see the brand new pictures in on this. we've got a live report. >> we flooded five times but nothing anywhere near like this. this is the worst. money, and i avoid frustration. you'll find reviews on home repair to healthcare written by people just like you. you want to be sure the money you're about to spend is money well spent. angie's list -- reviews you can trust. with the innovating and the transforming and the revolutionizing. it's enough to make you forget that you're flying five hundred miles an hour on a chair that just became a bed. you see, we're doing some changing of our own. ah, we can talk about it later. we're putting the wonder
secretary janet napolitano anytime at our website, c-span.org. the president obama released a statement earlier today on that explosion in west, texas. he said quote today our prayers o out to the peoplest my aatdmin, through fema and other agencies, is in close contact with our state an lalrsk sure there are no unmet needs. again,the president in a statement earlier today. nancy pelosi holding her weekly legislative briefing. that was a bit early. she discussed yesterday's failed vote on bipartisan gun legislation in the senate. she was joined by congressman mike thompson who chairs the gun violence prevention task force. they're proposing a house version of a compckgroundck this is 20 minutes. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> as we gather here this morning, people are gathering in boston for a prayer service. we joined them, our prayers and thoughts are with the people of boston, the families of all of the victims of this senseless tragedy, wherever they are from. we pray for the recovery of the injured and as americans and members of congress. words are always inadequate for time
-existing conditions are being told basically by the obama administration, sorry, we didn't plan for you. mr. gardner: and i understand the money republicans would propose to spend to address this -- mr. wrung: and i understand the money the republicans would spend on this issue, the obama administration wants to spend on advertising, advertising the exchanges, dvertising how the obamacare will work. >> this is the helping sick americans act. tomorrow we're going to defund the preventive care act, the slush fund in the affordable care act that has been going for everything from paths and bike paths and advertising campaigns and spaying and neutering dogs, instead we're going to move that money, defund it, pay down about $8 billion on the deficit and we're going to move money into these high-risk pools that are run by the states that are going to take care of sick americans. mrs. roby: and we look forward to that debate in the next two days. we are closing in on the end of our hour, we are just joined by mr. griffin, the gentleman from arkansas and as you know, we are talking about tonight, this is ht
to michelle obama for raising the national conversation about obesity and health and nutrition. on the one side. on the other hand, too, these products are so compelling. i like to call them the foods we hate to love because, you know, it's hard to talk about something that you love to eat in negative, in negative tones. >> host: michael moss, what was the reception from the food companies when you approached them about "salt sugar fat"? >> guest: i think that they were actually -- i mean, i was surprised by how willing they were to talk to me. and i started off with a trove of internal documents which helped tremendously. these thousands and thousands of pages put me at the table as the largest companies were plotting and planning and formulating their way to creating new products. those documents enabled me to convince their top scientists, marketing officials, ceos in some cases to talk to me and reveal even more secrets. and so -- and i was really surprised by how many companies have a cabal of insiders who are genuinely concerned about obesity and health issues associated with their p
obama and adding to the song "yes, we can: voices of a grassroots movement," she has well sung the national anthem at the national championship football game and as well she has given a lot of contributions to american music. she is a supporter of music education for our children, the mother of a daughter and, yes, a prominent american. but i think if we could say the most about yolanda adams is that she never stops evangelizing and seeking to help those who are hopeless and in despair. she brings joy to those who seek it and believes that everyone is a child of god. i'm grateful to know yolanda adams and to claim her as a constituent of the great city of houston and the great state of texas. but most of all, she's an american who is a believer and understands the value of america's freedom to be able to worship. she continues to soldier on to save souls and we're delighted to have been able to have her bless us this morning. mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the chair will entertain five further requests for one-minute speeches on each side of the aisle. the
and most people who want recreational pot voted for obama. the republicans have been talking about how they need to reach out to latinos and black people but i don't hear any of them talk about legalizing pot. also another thing is this. at the beginning of the year there was about 15 minutes on c-span and you had a man on that was pro and then you had a man on, a republican congressman from the heritage foundation again that was against pot, the legalization of pot. it was the same thing like today. i heard earlier on talking about how there are for limited government and yet these guys come out against legalized pot. >> host: thanks for your comments. we will get an answer from beau kilmer. >> guest: no, if you look at the latest polls a study done by pew that got a lot of attention a couple of weeks ago and it came out that 52% of the respondents approved of legalizing marijuana use. there has been a big change over time. there was another poll, gallup organization doing the same poll over time and we know that in the mid-90s if you look when people ask the question do you -- google
they were honored at fenway park and mentioned by president obama earlier this week. >> to watch it and to feel it and people finding their legs. we want to begin with the investigation into the boston marathon bombings. we're getting a new look at the final moments before the suspected bomber was captured. infrared video shows them moving inside the boat. a little later an explosion of a flash grenade is seen going off before agents took him into custody. federal charges could be filed against him as soon as today. now our national investigative correspondent michael isikoff continues to cover the story from boston. he is standing by now with the very latest. michael, good morning. good to see you. >> we could be learning a lot more about the boston marathon bombing when federal prosecutors file those criminal charges possibly as early as this morning, laying out some of the government's evidence against the surviving 19-year-old suspe. but, meanwhile, questions are mounting about how much the fbi knew before the bombing about his older brother, and alleged accomplice and whethe
to guantanamo. in any case the obama administration has shown absolutely no interest in that idea and every indication is that he will be tried as a criminal defendant in an american criminal courtroom. >> lindsey graham who himself is a military attorney, has spent 30 years in the u.s. air force, he insists he wants tsarnaev to be tried in american civilian court, but that didn't preclude at least for now naming him an enemy combatant to try to question him to see if there are other bombs out there, other individuals who may be involved. sort of this imminent threat notion. is he on sound legal ground, lindsey graham, when he says, yes, he'll go before a civil trial, but at least for now name him an enemy combatant so he can be questioned? >> well, the obama administration has established a policy of a so-called public safety exception to the miranda rule where for some period of time, it's not entirely clear how long, a suspect can be questioned without miranda warnings and that apparently is what's happening here. again, it's complicated somewhat by the fact that we didn't know exactly w
that president obama or vice president biden or senior members of the cabinet make the decision to travel to britain and to honor the incredible legacy of baroness margaret thatcher. it was truly a providential blessing that margaret thatcher served alongside president ronald reagan and pope john paul ii. together the three of them did something that previously had been unimaginable. so many had opined the cold war was unwinnable, that we had to accept detente. we had to accept a condition in which the united states would constantly be in military conflict with the soviet union and our children would constantly be in fear of potential catastrophic nuclear war. and yet, when reagan and thatcher and pope john paul all ascended to leadership, together they had the vision to do something that very few imagined was possible. to win the cold war without firing a shot. had that been suggested in the 1970's, that would have been diminished as crazy talk, and yet that's precisely what they did. i would suggest in modern times there are few, if any, more deserving of the nobel peace prize than thos
obama. he spoke at the interfaith service yesterday. he is talking to one of the men involved with the marathon, matt. he told him that he will run again. some of the people off the limbs -- lsot limbs. does that give you hope or inspiration? caller: of course. the human spirit is here to stay, but we have a lot of problems to work out. we have to start raising our children right. host: you can see more images from yesterday's interfaith service. the mayor of boston, the governor of massachusetts, and others were there at yesterday's service. bernard in washington, d.c., independent caller. caller: good morning, thanks for taking my call. it's my first time. washington and maryland should be able to have a gun. there's a good opportunity you may be able to take out one person. host: explain what you mean by ccw. caller: that is a concealed carry permit. there's a chance maybe a terrorist or someone could take out one person in the neighborhood. but to be able to take out a neighbo -- out a whole neighborhood where everybody is armed, it would never happen in this country. host
a couple weeks ago, anything you say against obama is good policy. that is his opinion and that the way he's going. should be tried in federal court, because they have a couple options -- the death .enalty if he does not want to cooperate, they could go ahead with the death penalty. then you'll see how fast he turns. as far as being a military combatant, no, that's out of the question. he is a u.s. citizen. hanks for the call from south carolina. i want to show you a few of the front pages. this is the boston globe this morning. several other stories about the attacks. boston paper with the bombing on the front page, this is "the guardian out of london. if a picture on the front page shows runners observing a moment of silence before the start of the london marathon yesterday, less than a week after the attacks at the boston marathon. is up next from massachusetts on the republican line. caller: he is an enemy combatant. an 8-year-old boy with a bomb. he used his telephone to say he wanted to kill more americans, so he proved that. he was an enemy. host: the you think that he should end up
are being security purposes. i hope the obama administration will allow us that option that exists in our law. they have a very bad track record here. >> the white house telling reporters it would try the younger brother in federal court and that no options were considered. >> this is a matter that's decided by the department of justice and the attorney general, obviously at the top, the whole national security team supports this decision. >> military trial was not an option in this case because the 19-year-old is an american citizen. even if it provided more information about his brother who was killed last week. shep. >> shepard: catherine herridge in washington. catherine, thank you. that criminal complaint details the suspect's serious injuries. gunshot wounds to the head, the throat, the legs, and the hand. investigators say it appears the suspect shot himself as swat teams closed. in a possible attempt to kill himself they say. today, officers said he was in very bad shape by the time they took him down. >> moving up to the boat, he was actually laying down on the side of the boat.
by the associated press claimed there were explosions at the white house and president barack obama was injured. stocks tumbled briefly at the news. but bounded back after a-p said it's twitter account was hacked. here are the final numbers. the dow added 152 points. the nasdaq rose 35 points. and the s-and-p 500 rose 16 points. >> i think it's game changer. if your small business, you don't wanna see this in any way, shape or form. the supreme court said that if you do an internet transaction he did not have to collect taxes. for local government is a decision that will hopefully pool and $23 billion in state local taxes. there's pros and cons. i will still shop online, because i hate people. bipartisan support and the white house said if you pass it, we will approve it. it's more so the matter of when and not if. ming out wir quarterly earnings. >> they don't have a lot of competition. the department of justice have approved mergers that she wouldn't have thought would be passed. the roots are going to be more and more eliminated. they're charging full price and they're not discounting to com
